The Andermatt Madumbi story

Andermatt Madumbi sees two organisations with a shared belief joining forces for a better future.

Madumbi’s journey began 20 years ago, when our founders Andre Fox and Patrick Deal partnered Timbavati Game Reserve to assist local Shangaan communities as they attempted to create a protected elephant corridor. Their goal was to achieve this through sustainable agriculture. It was through a gift of locally grown potatoes known as madumbes that Madumbi Sustainable Agriculture was born on completion of this project.

Founded 30 years ago by Martin and Isabel Andermatt in their student apartment, Andermatt Biocontrol is now a global leader in the BioControl industry. From their humble accommodation, they obtained the first approval in the world for the application of a granulovirus in food production. Their expertise in providing biological alternatives to chemical pesticides through innovative viral technology, beneficial insects and microbial control products is unmatched.

Andermatt Madumbi is the natural evolution of Madumbi’s humble origins. Fuelled by the understanding that nature leads innovation, under the leadership of people who care about the environment, two like-minded organisations are sharing knowledge for a better future.
In moving forward, we bring together the precision of the Swiss clock with the heartbeat of the African Drum.

This is Andermatt Madumbi.
